For the past several weeks, I have been talking about why people don't use coupons and sharing ways to help everyone understand how easy it really is. Check out my previous posts here.
The final excuse I would like to discuss is:
I don't want to shop that many stores.no that is not me in that picture. I wish :).
To that I say...I hear ya! I don't want to shop a lot of stores either, especially when I am hauling kids. I am not a big fan of shopping with kids! I do shop several stores each week. What is my solution?
++I rarely do ALL of my shopping at one time. I like to break it up. I usually will do one or two stores at a time.
++I live about two blocks away from a Hostess Bakery Thrift Store, so during the day I will walk there with my kids.
++I usually do my other shopping in the evening when my husband is home and take one child with me.
++There is a Walgreen's across the street from where I work, so I will usually run there on my lunch hour on the days I work. We also have a few prescriptions there so when it is time to refill I plan a shopping trip at the same time.
The main thing is, you have to do what is best for you. I am (finally) past the point where I have to get every great deal out there. I can pick and choose the deals that are important to me and I shop when it works for me.
